The Olive Lippoldt Tidal Wetland Garden
Pocomoke City, Maryland
Very shortly after my first visit to the Olive Lippoldt Memorial Tidal Garden.
A group of sailors from the Wallops Island Station were the first to volunteer to assist in the completion of the foot bridge over the tidal garden. Last fall they were on hand to volunteer their services for work needed for the extension of the Nature Trail located in the back of Cypress Park.
Please take the time to get out and visit Cypress Park. This is your park and the extrance fee costs nothing. Cypress Parks provides a place for chidren to run, an area for a picnic and plenty of shade or sunshine and fresh air. Don't forget to take a walk across the footbridge to see what living creatures my be there. The plaques around the garden will provide you will all the infomation you need. See what you can discover. Take a photo of what you find, send it to me and I will post it for everyone to see. And even if you find nothing send me a photo of your family member on the bridge and I will post that also.
The wonderful group of Sailors that have given their free time to volunteer in a town far from their own hometown will never be forgotten. The gracious woman, Olive Lippoldt, that the tidal park was named in honor of will never be forgotten. So Pocomoke it's time for you to sign up and be part of the plan.
Let's continue with the plans made to make the Olive Lippoldt Tidal Wetland Garden and Nature Trail even better than it is.
Volunteer your time.
